Proverbs 4:21 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

On פּרעהוּ, avoid it (the way), (opp. אחז, Job 17:9; תּמך, Psalm 17:5), see under Proverbs 1:25. שׂטה, elsewhere (as the Arab. shatt, to be without measure, insolent) used in malam partem, has here its fundamental meaning, to go aside. מעליו (expressed in French by de dessus, in Ital. by di sopra) denotes: so that thou comest not to stand on it. עבר means in both cases transire, but the second instance, "to go beyond (farther)" (cf. 2 Samuel 15:22, and under Habakkuk 1:11), coincides with "to escape, evadere."
